Level 1

November 13-14, 2021

The Private Practice Experience in Dentistry is designed to give high school and college students the opportunity to learn the clinical and business aspects of a real world dental practice. More than just a shadowing experience, The Private Practice Experience will immerse you in the day-to-day operation of a dental practice. With our 3:1 participant-to-mentor ratio, students will learn from lectures, presentations, hands-on exercises, and chairside involvement in actual dental procedures. Not only will it build your resume, but it will give you first hand experience necessary in making an educated career choice.
"Choosing a healthcare profession is difficult.  Thirty+ years ago I chose dentistry and love it. However, I got lucky! I chose dentistry blindly.  I never shadowed a dentist, never knew a dentist personally and hated going to the dentist because it hurt so much!  I chose dentistry because I liked art and science, and loved working with my hands, but I was blind to what it was really like.  I took a gamble and won, but I know many dentists who do not like the profession.  I don't want this to happen to you.  Gain first-hand experience before choosing a career." ~ Dr. David Forlano
